Somewhere Over the Rainbow

Greetings all. I'm sorry for my absence over the last week - I've been immersed in completing a special project. Check back next thursday for more re same.

A particular hello to readers in USA affected by The Storm - wishing you strenght through a most challenging time.

Any crafty people in Ireland might be interested in visiting the 'Knitting and Stitching' show in Dublin. I was there today - there sure are some incredible crafting talents on display, as well as 'shopping opportunities'. Show finishes tomorrow.

My card today will hopefully bring cheer, as the song goes, Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue...

Ingredients are: Bazzill CS, SEI Velvet Paper, Bo Bunny flower, Punches from Woodware, Martha Stewart and Punch Bunch, Ribbons, Twine and Ladybird from stash.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Nicola x
